Overview
Spare yourself the hassle of haggling with boatmen and taxi drivers on this small-group tour that covers Hue’s highlights in a single day: the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hue Imperial City, Thien Mu Pagoda, a Perfume River cruise, and Dong Ba Market. Your guide will help you navigate Hue’s unique culture and food, steering you straight to the market’s finest snacks and the citadel’s most beautiful views.
Highlights
  • Explore Hue Imperial City, a UNESCO-listed site, with a guide
  • Try street eats at Dong Ba Market and Buddhist vegetarian food at a convent
  • Cruise the Perfume River, visit Thien Mu pagoda, and see incense being made
  • Enjoy round-trip transportation and a small group of no more than 12 people
What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel, begin your tour of what was once Vietnam’s national capital by sampling street food at the Dong Ba Market. Next, explore the UNESCO-listed Hue Imperial City, with its regal tombs, ornate pagodas, and tranquil lakes. Lunch at a local pagoda on Vietnamese vegetarian Buddhist cuisine before visiting a little village that’s known for its incense. Arrive at the Thien Mu Pagoda with its 7-story tower and learn about eccentric emperors at the arena where tigers and elephants once fought. Finally, enjoy a relaxing cruise down Perfume River, alive with colorful dragon boats. Once you disembark, your mini-coach will collect you for the journey back to your hotel.

If you really want to see the great sights in Hue then do yourself a favour and take this trip with Thanh Van. We were picked up from our hotel and shown all the major attractions. Thanh Van is a local and very knowledgeable about the history and culture of her home city.

Vanho showed great humour in teaching us about the many beautiful parts of historic Hue. She went out of her way to care for her group. Nothing was too much trouble. It was a hot day but the tougher it got, the more energy she put into entertaining us. Thank you for a great tour.
